FareStart has signed a lease with the Washington State Dept. of Commerce for space at the iconic Pacific Tower, located atop Seattle’s Beacon Hill. The lease, which includes 10,000 square feet of space across the first and second floors, is part of FareStart’s new five year strategic growth plan aimed at more than doubling the number of individuals served through the organization’s job training programs.
FareStart will officially occupy the new space September 1. The Pacific Tower facilities will operate in tandem with the organization’s current location at 700 Virginia Street, home of the FareStart Restaurant and the well-known weekly Guest Chef Night dinner series.
